It may still technically be Spring but we’re planning ahead for Summer! This month we have some Summer seasonals and some perfect-for-summer brews—come find your new go-to beach beer. Also, join us in welcoming No Label Brewing Co. and William K Busch Brewing to Pint Jockeys! Reminder that our tastings are open to the public 21 and over. Share your experience with #pintjockeys.

In Victoria and Beaumont this month, our lineup will include:

Hop Delusion

Karbach Hop Delusion – Dry hopped with insane amounts of Simcoe and Mosaic hops giving it over 100 IBU’s. You are now in a state of Hop Delusion.

Staycation

Karbach Staycation –A highly sessionable beer brewed with a blend of barley and wheat and dry-hopped with Bavarian Mandarina for a big citrusy nose.

Sierra Nevada Hoptimum

Sierra Nevada Hoptimum – A hurricane of whole-cone hop flavor, Hoptimum features resinous hop varieties Magnum, Chinook, Simcoe and a new experimental variety exclusive to Sierra Nevada. Its intense hop flavors are partnered with aromas of grapefruit rind, pine, herbs and tropical fruit to create an aggressive drinking experience.

ElHefe

No Label El Hefe – A traditional German Hefeweizen. This beer is light and refreshing with strong notes of banana, cloves and citrus. Perfect for that hot summer day.

ElevenAmp

No Label Eleven Amp IPA –No Label’s take on the IPA style, inspired by West Coast IPA’s. Less malt character and more hops, the majority of which are added in the final minutes of the boil or later. Drinks dry but not too bitter.

 WKBB_Hspot_2C_lager

William K Busch Brewing Company Kräftig Lager – Award-winning Kräftig is the classic lager, brewed in accordance with Reinheitsgebot, the German Beer Purity Law established in 1516. Malt flavor up front with a slight sweetness, and a hop character that doesn’t overtake it.

Texas City will be sampling these tasty treats:

KCCO White Wheat – Brewed with both lemon and orange zest yielding a unique citrus flavor. The yellow haze results from a perfectly balanced mix of white wheat with sweet honey malt. Perfect for our Texas heat.

Transatlantique_Kriek_22oz_Mothercarton_Side.jpg

New Belgium Lips of Faith Transatlantique Kriek Ale – New Belgium Brewing and Old Beersel of Belgium have partnered to create this spontaneously fermented lambic ale made with sour cherries. The cherry nose gives way to a pleasingly sour flash across the palate that rolls into a slightly sweet finish.
